X-Men: Apocalypse marks the end of the current “prequel” series of X-Men films that started with First Class. It’s essentially been a series of right wrongs when you stand back to look at each film. Days of Future Past reset the timeline and Apocalypse is set to give the X-Men movies in the future a fresh start. But the problem with bringing things to an end means you might be losing some of key castmembers.
The rumors before were that stars like Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence wouldn’t be making a comeback if more X-Men films got produced. Not so for one of them, according to Empire. They talked to Jennifer Lawrence on the set of X-Men: Apocalypse and she dropped her hopes about her role in the series:
“I am dying to come back,” she told us. “I love these movies, I love being in them. I love ensemble movies because it’s not on anyone’s shoulders.”
